This is a really good idea Maha. As a long-time critic of mistakes the medical system has made with me the realization has come up that it’s the almost obsessive need to depersonalize me to uncomplicate my care that grinds on me. The loss of self or the right to express as self could be into a game for young people who could imagine themselves as pushed back to childhood while retaining their young-adult sensibilities, experiences rights and skills. My daughters are in their mid-30’s now and I often forget that they have had ACTUAL adult experiences and it drives them crazy when I “explain” things in “Dad Talk.” Maybe it has to with the sense of going beyond the need for “guidance” into the new world of authenticity of self?

Used to love branching questions. My favorite redirection was to add, “you would think this from the nature of the question but can you think of alternatives?”
